So many things went wrong in this pilot i don't even know which to talk about first.
I'm going to start out with things that i was ok with. Female version of sherlock, that's fine. Lame trope that the nerdy guy with eventually be with the girl, fine.

Things that where annoying/poorly done:
The amount of times they said Temporal Dysplasia, yeah we get it. Also it apparently gives you the ability to slow down time like the matrix?? ok.

The whole thing was way too rushed! They didn't give the right intro to the character!

They gave us a random feud between her roommate to show that she's very smart. Then they brought in her dead dad?? to show us that she feels nothing but they could have don't this in a much less packed way. Then they shove her into some top secret program?

WAY TOO MUCH JUMPING around, plot wise! It felt like the cinematic version of "word vomit" when someone just rambles on with no direction.

I can't speak for the show as a whole, but the Pilot was, for me, literally as good as a pilot can get. 10/10. I absolutely loved it and can't wait for next week. The series has a strong premise that has proven to resonate with people (Tru Callin, Pushing Daisies, Izombie) and explores it in a completely unique way with a cast of fast-talking, witty, youthful and likable characters. It's smart, its fresh, its well-written. It's the epitome of a good science fiction series. I'm very surprised that it is on ABC Family. They generally don't have too many Science fiction shows. If I can recall ... all they ever had was Kyle XY and No Ordinary Family ... thas it. So good on them for spending the money to buy this show. That being said, because they are a significantly smaller network, the shows ratings will inevitably be much smaller than they could be if it were on a major broadcast network or even a major cable network like TNT or FX. I predict a 0.6-0.9 for the pilot, then maybe a decline to 0.6-0.7. That actually wouldn't be bad. That should be enough to get it renewed considering the fosters was renewed with a 0.5.

Update: I keep reading all these people saying its terrible, that its forced, too quit, too little character development, too many unoriginal ideas. I don't agree with ANY of these things. First of all, A pilot needs to be rushed and it should severly limit the character development because you only have 54 minutes to get the point of the show across and you do that with action, not words. Secondly, This show has no similarities to fringe whatsoever save for a box full of water that she lies down in and the fact that its science fiction.. You say the show is unoriginal and a rip off of previous shows -- Well what would you have them do, bring back these old shows that were canceled or concluded? Of course material is going to be recycled -- successful shows have a market, and that market doesn't go away after the show ends. They are catering to a market they know exists. You guys are being way to critical. Its a TV show meant to entertain, its not a College Essay and you're not the professor grading it.

This show is absolute garbage, the premise is ridiculous and the characters are unlikeable. The ONLY redeeming characteristic is Allison Scagliotti, who barely has a part.

The "nerds" are misogynistic towards Kirsten, 2 episodes in and it just seems like a show looking for excuses to put her in tight clothing.

God, its just so Bad! And this UnknownFear dude above is just delirious.

Its like a Marketing executive is trying to create a Science Fiction show to attract the viewership of young nerd boys. Sad thing is it will probably work.

No, can't do it.. there are too many other better shows that I could be watching instead of this .. bored out of my mind during the first episode and the second wasn't any better.. big thumbs down for this one.

Is this honestly a joke? This is a direct rip-off of Fringe.
The sensory deprivation tank making the brain connections, the secret government agency and even the main character somewhat looks like Anna Torv. Poor form ABC

So I am always very excited to discover a new show and give it a real shot, even when the pilot is not great but... this was painful to watch!

With such a premise, they could have gone for such a solid, dark, dramatic story line. Instead, they chose the comedic tone while failing to be funny... at any point.

I can't say I expect much from the next episodes to come. And it's not like ABC Family hasn't produced some fantastic shows so this is really a surprise... I'll give it one more try next week but they have a lot of work ahead of them!

Nicely done, good pace, nerdy (but not too much). I hope the writing is good, and this could go a long way

So take an idea explored in almost exactly the same way in a great series now concluded - FRINGE.
Add in a budget and a great script (so far). Cast in some good character actors (so far).
BOOM - Stitchers. Worth a watch.
Then while you are waiting for the next episode check out the 5 seasons of FRINGE - brilliant - IMHO
UPDATE: CAUTION - The second episode has exposed the formulaic format used by SCORPION. On closer look it even has the same characters as SCORPION - you know the nerdy one the good looking nerdy one and the main character with a flaw (but good looking)!
Now that the 'father' cannot be STITCHED has that opened a BLACKLIST type father figure door? Then there is the failed STITCHER who will, in the end, be STITCHED to save her life - I would put money on that.
This could be good if the TV channel stopped thinking in 40-minute episodes.
On a brighter note check out FRINGE and the new season of STRIKE BACK - Rule Britannia!
Update: Season 2 - so far awful.
Update Update: Season 3 - no one is listening!

it's a great show, i'm so glad it got a 2nd season and i hope it gets more.what would it be if you could see what the person sees before he gets killed, it would be easy to find the killer,right? you would think so,but... and there is some underlined plot that keeps unraveling.try it maybe you are like me and will be hooked.
